Good practices in using partnerships for effective and efficient delivery of employment services and active labour market policies in India

EMPLOYMENT Working Paper No. 233

This country study on India examines the framework for provision of employment services in the country, focusing on the recent comprehensive and radical reforms undertaken to revamp the system through the establishment of the National Career Service (NCS) in 2015, replacing the National Employment Service. The NCS, built around the versatile and universal online jobs portal and the establishment of modern model career centres, seeks to rally all key stakeholders in the labour market, through partnerships to improve service provision.
